ATHENS — For as much clarity as we got about the quarterback and safety positions, the cornerback battle opposite Kamari Lassiter is still very much unknown.

    MOst spring games are pretty high yardage passing games. THe D-Line has to play pattycake and no one really wants to lower the boom on their brother with an exception or two perhaps. Sideline hit on Delps. So, it's hard to play corner whenyour covering good receivers and the DLIne isn't getting pressure. See the Ohio St. game and the LSU game.

    I think UGA as a lot of weapons on the offense which will make it harder for defenses (CBs) to manage and cover. I think this is only making are CBs that much better before they enter the season. Not worried on who will play across from Lassiter, because we have really good help from the top.

    This is where it's nice to have that fluffy schedule early in the season.

    Lots of extremely talented young CBS will have the rest of the preseason and at least two games to hone their skills, before the secondary might be truly tested by Spencer Rattler.

    We are totally loaded at cornerback. Everette, Greene, and Humphrey all are starters somwhere.

    AJ Harris is the best of the lot though. Such talent he needs to be play early. I expect him to be a starter next year. We most likely lose a couple of guys since we have another 5 star corner coming in next year as well.

    Cannot keep them all but you need to play the best Kirby. Play the best...

    Only 2 cornerback spots and Lassiter has one. That leaves 4 uber talented guys for the other spot plus a couple of high ranked guys coming in next year. Cannot keep them all happy. I loved AJ Harris and what I saw during the spring game. He held his own as a true Freshman and really uses his hands aggressively off the line.

    I will go ahead and predict Greene to start the year and then Humphrey or Harris to take over by end of year.
